A two-thirds scaled expression of the minimalist architectural aesthetics of the original Profile series, Profile Mini is a diminutive linear LED pendant luminaire with unique hollow aperture design, delivering unparalleled longitudinal clarity and transparency right through the fixture.
Profile Mini’s low brightness, continuous lenses emit light from both interior planes of the luminaire, efficiently and precisely directed to create a batwing distribution in both the hemispheres.
